1. What is your current main mode of transportation? e.g. car, bike, subway, walking etc.
Car. I live in the metro Detroit area; it's pretty much a given to drive around here.

2. Are you satisfied with your current main mode of transportation (answer to question 1)? Why?
It's a big, but reliable car. So sure.

3. Do you think you'll change your means of transit soon? e.g. buy a car, get rid of your car, walk more etc.? If so why?
Not while I'm in this area; what public transportation there is is nowhere near me.

4. If time distance and money were not factors how do you prefer to get from point A to point B?
I long to ride a bike again. If there were a safe way to/from work, biking in would be nice.

5. What was your worst transit experience?
Scary time on a flight back from Las Vegas years ago; plane smelled like fuel on the inside and the bulkhead wasn't hooked up right so you could see the plane's infrastructure. :o

1. What is your current main mode of transportation? e.g. car, bike, subway, walking etc.
Car.
It's the only way to get around in TX, at least where I live. There is no public transportation in Round Rock. Austin has a bus system, and I've used it a bit. I like to use the train when I have to go downtown in the evenings, but the service times are very limited.

2. Are you satisfied with your current main mode of transportation (answer to question 1)? Why?
I'm not terribly satisfied with it. I'd like to have options, and I'm not a fan of driving. I like being able to read, or do something else to make good use of my time. When I used to take the train + bus downtown while I was attending ACC Riverside, I could have all my homework done by the time I got home. That was nice.

3. Do you think you'll change your means of transit soon? e.g. buy a car, get rid of your car, walk more etc.? If so why?
I don't see it changing any time soon. Our subdivision is off of a 4-lane 65MPH road, and it leads directly to the interstate. There isn't anything within easy walking distance; there is a brand new CVS about 2 miles away. That's it.

4. If time distance and money were not factors how do you prefer to get from point A to point B?
Commuter train for sure. The Austin Metro train is very nice inside: clean, plush, and many of the seats have tables.

5. What was your worst transit experience?
While I was at Penn State, I used to ride the bus quite a bit. I got on a bus that had previously taken me to the grocery store. Unfortunately, the route had changed and I was unaware of it. I ended up riding the entire loop, wasting my window to get to the store. I had to eat ramen for the next several days until I had another chance to go. At the time, I couldn't afford to eat out that often, but I had ramen. . . morning, noon, and night, for an entire week. The one meal I met up with my friends for a burger was glorious.
